Destructive Desires Sermon Series

All of us do things that are not really good for us in some way. We don’t exercise enough, maybe we don’t eat right or we just worry too much. But the Bible helps us to understand that some things we do are just destructive to us; physically, emotionally and spiritually. Through April and May we will take a look at seven of these destructive behaviors and how allowing them into our lives robs us of the joy of living.

APR 15: Envy – “I Want What You Have”
APR 22: Gluttony – “But It Feels So Good”
APR 29: Greed – “Never Enough”
MAY 6: Lust – “The Ring of Fire”
MAY 13: Pride – “Lord, It’s Hard to Be Humble”
MAY 20: Sloth – “I Would Love To, But…”
JUN 3: Wrath – “You Suck Egg Mule”

Chosen By God Sermon Series

This sermon series will take a closer look at the women listed in the lineage of Christ found in Matthew 1. By society’s standards, all of these women were unlikely candidates to be used by God to fulfill His promise to send a Messiah. What does their place in Christ’s heritage tell us about what it takes to be Chosen By God?

Half Truths Sermon Series

This sermon series will use Adam Hamilton’s book Half-Truths as a guide: They are simple phrases. They sound Christian—like something you might find in the Bible. We’ve all heard these words. Maybe we’ve said them. They capture some element of truth, yet they miss the point in important ways.
